My 2015 Reading Challenge @ Goodreads.

I didn't complete my 2015 Reading Challenge on Goodreads this year unfortunately.
You can find the complete list of the books I read during 2015 and how I rated them here.

I've done the Reading Challenge on Goodreads every year since 2012 now but for some reason I haven't completed any of the Reading Challenges since 2012. In 2012 I entered the Reading Challenge some months after the year had started so I had already read some books and completed the challenge that year with 26 books instead of 25 books that was my goal for that year. Since then I've had 26 books as a goal in every Reading Challenge because I know that I can do it since I already did it once but unfortunately I haven't been able to do it again for 3 years. I've probably been procrastinating too much and doing other unnecessary things but I love books and reading so I shouldn't even have a problem with completing a Reading Challenge. Especially not a Reading Challenges with only 26 books when I've seen other people reading that many books in just a month or people reading over 100 books every year. I probably should try to step it up and read more books every year since I have many books on my Goodreads to-read list and it's just increasing every year.
1,724,660 Goodreads users participated in the 2015 Reading Challenge and 19,049 challenges were completed. A total of 28,860,193 books were completed.

How many books do you want to read in 2016?

Merry Christmas! ♥

Pika is the most adorable Santa but he's definitely not a happy one.

Personal Planner/Personlig Almanacka for 2016.

I ordered my Personal Planner (Personlig Almanacka) for 2016 in September.

I designed & customized the planner as much as I could, which obviously is the best thing about this planner brand.
This is the planner I'll be using for year 2016!

Burde 2016 Weekly A5 planner.

Put on CC/Subtitles to read my opinions & thoughts about this planner during the video! Available in English & Swedish!

I ordered the Burde Weekly A5 planner in July and got it in August.

I've mostly used the Burde student planners before so I thought it would be a good idea to get another normal Burde planner since I'm not a student. Since I've used their planners before I immediately thought of them when I wanted a new planner and I fell in love with the rosé colored sleeve that comes with this planner.

Somehow I didn't realize that I ordered a planner with both lines and hours written in it and my perfectionist brain really just wants a simple planner without a hourly layout and with no lines in it. The student planners I've used before have had a hourly layout with lines in them but now I just really want a planner without them with completely blank pages.

Especially after I discovered the whole planner community last year and realized that you can actually decorate your planner and use it as a calendar, diary and scrapbook. Even if I don't end up decorating my planner at all, I just want a planner with blank pages.

There's nothing wrong with the Burde Weekly A5 planner itself, it's a good planner and I would definitely recommend it. But I just won't be able to use it because of how I want my planner to look like.

I'm going to keep the rosé colored cover and I'll use another planner for year 2016.

I'm going to give away this planner to a friend so it won't go to waste.

151220 - Fourth Advent.

Today is Fourth Advent!

Today it's only 4 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥

Disney Store - Mall of Scandinavia.

On December 19, 2015 I visited Disney Store at Mall of Scandinavia! ♥
It’s our first Disney Store here in Sweden.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at Mall of Scandinavia.

Tomorrow I'm going to see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with my Brother and Dad!

We're going to see the movie at the IMAX (Filmstaden Scandinavia) cinema at the Mall of Scandinavia in SolnaMall of Scandinavia is a brand new mall in Solna that opened last month and Filmstaden Scandinavia is the first IMAX cinema that we have here in Sweden. So it will be a cool experience to see a movie in a IMAX cinema to see what it's all about.
I really LOVE fantasy books, movies, TV-series etc. but as much as I love them I've honestly only seen 1 or 2 Star Wars movies before and I don't even remember which ones I've seen. I've just never gotten into the whole Star Wars thing. My Dad wasn't sure if I liked the movies or not when he booked the tickets but he booked a ticket for me anyway since he thought it might be cool to just see and experience a movie in a IMAX cinema and I agree. I hope that I'll like the movie of course but even if I don't like it I've at least seen a movie in a IMAX cinema.

I don't know what my Dad was thinking since he know that I'm definitely not a morning person but he said that all of the tickets were sold out or you could book a seat at different places and you obviously want to sit together if you go to see a movie with someone. So my Dad was crazy and booked the tickets to 10:00 AM tomorrow! I'm never awake that early during the weekend and now we'll watch a movie at that time so we'll see how that will turn out and if I'll even be able to focus on the movie. But I'm definitely going to bed early tonight so I won't be way too tired tomorrow since I'll have to go up some time after 8:00 AM I think. Wish me luck!

Since we're going to be at the Mall of Scandinavia tomorrow I'm definitely going to visit the Disney Store and Lego Store after we've seen the movie. We've had a Swedish Disney Store website for a few years now but now we finally have a real Disney Store in Sweden and I definitely have to go there tomorrow when I have the chance! I already know how much I'm going to love it since I'm such a big Disney fan. The Lego Store is also the first store in Sweden and it will definitely be fun to visit as well.

Christmas market @ Sergels Torg.

I had to take these photos of the beautiful Christmas decorations at the Christmas market at Sergels Torg when me and my Mom were there yesterday. ♥

Ellinor bags from Gina Tricot.


Yesterday I got both these 2 handbags from Gina Tricot! ♥

I got a newsletter from Gina Tricot some days ago and they had featured the black bag with a gold chain in it. I fell in love with it right away and clicked on it to get to the store website and then I saw that it was also available in light pink with a silver chain.

So I went with my Mom yesterday when she was doing some errands so I could swing by Gina Tricot afterwards to get both of these handbags. I checked if they were available at the store before so I knew that I had to go to one store to get the black handbag and then to another store to get the light pink handbag but those stores are close to each other so that wasn't a problem. I just HAD to get the handbags!

These handbags look even better in real life, if that's even possible. I'm SO happy with them! 
The light pink bag is more like a light pink/beige color but I love it anyway.

I actually think they look like they could be designer bags, which they're obviously not.

“Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them” - Announcement.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” premieres on November 18, 2016.

151213 - Third Advent.

Today is Third Advent!

Today it's only 1 week and 4 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥


Today my Mom came home with these 2 Santa's to me. ♥


I got a pair of SleepPhones as a early Christmas present from my Mom today. ♥

She had actually put a package on my place at the table so I obviously thought that the package was to me and I opened it before even looking at it. Then when I had already opened it I looked at the label and it said my Mom's name on it so I realized that I had just opened one of my Christmas presents... whoops. 
So this obviously became a early Christmas present.

If you're wondering what SleepPhones is, they're supposed to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. They're supposed to help close out annoying noices like someones snoring or other distractions. I'm going to use them to listen to GentleWhispering's ASMR videos before going to sleep.
